Walk into Fort Nisqually and experience daily life in the 1850s at a regional trade and agriculture center. This British outpost was the first European settlement on Puget Sound. Today, Fort Nisqually is a living history museum where volunteers and staff, in period clothing, engage visitors in the work, crafts, and social practices of the mid-19th century. Open year-round. Located in Tacoma’s Point Defiance Park, Fort Nisqually Living History Museum features seven historically furnished buildings, including two National Historic Landmarks, as well as a Visitor Center with Museum Store. A modern multi-purpose room is available for rent for groups of 60 or fewer. After hours, the Fort grounds may be rented for up to 350 people.
